15Five

15Five is a great platform, but it's very simplified and in the 4+ years that I've used it as an employee, I don't feel it has been changed or improved at all. While I'm sure there have been some minor updates, it has stayed virtually the same, which again leads me back to the feeling of "Groundhog day". Data collection plants the seeds for the future of any business, and the need is obviously there, but the monotony of it from an employee's perspective can also contribute to a decline in job joy. Overloading employees with reporting tasks across dozens of software platforms can lead to a major lack of productivity. As for where this platform is suited - in any organization that has a large number of entry-level employees who are all learning at different paces, with a great deal of upward mobility potential, this could be a very useful way to collect feedback and focus career development. In an organization full of senior-level employees with limited upward mobility who are results (or income) focused, this will be seen as an absolute waste of time and disrespectful to senior employees.

Tracking online learning completion for compliance or other reasons is easy within Cornerstone. Performance reviews are easy to set up and manage from the system as well. Searching for training can sometimes be difficult. Users do not know what types of subjects are available and can be confused as to how they can find a course.

Pros

15Five

  • The technology - 15Five manages all the organization of questions/submissions, and reminders.
  • Simplicity - 15Five isn't difficult to set up. And all of our users found it very easy to interface with.
  • Great features - You can add as many answers as you want. You can tag people. You can do a lot with it.
Rocky Kev | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cornerstone OnDemand

  • Custom email configuration allows us to communicate not only the expectations but help our team members understand what is asked of them. The ability to target messages based on completion of items allow team members to take the next steps and stay focused on their learning and development.
  • Robust reporting - coupled with experienced LMS admins with excellent analytical skills, you can track progress with a high level of accuracy.
  • We have a LinkedIn Learning integration which has been a grand slam, in less than a year we have over 10,000-course completions. I personally have developed a "thirst to learn" because of this tremendous partnership and the easy to access content on my mobile device.
  • Custom Pages, we have over 50,000+ team members without company email and we use Custom pages as a Bulletin Board to layout all details for our career development program. This keeps our team members in the loop at all times.
  • If you have a dynamic, talented team which I am fortunate to have, who is eager to use this LMS with an excellent attitude you can make a great impact on your organization and truly develop a culture of learning and accountability.

Cons

15Five

  • Although I mentioned customization as a positive aspect, it could use some improvements. The backend process of updating the questions, and setting them to a certain schedule, can be a bit confusing. This process could be streamlined.
  • The commenting process can be a bit confusing. If a person is tagged/mentioned in a comment, they are typically sent an email notifying them. However, it can be difficult to locate where you can reply and continue the conversation. Although a simple issue, it seems it could be easily rectified.
  • I would like to see more integration of the team portion of 15Five. It seems this feature is not as prominent, so you can easily get stuck in just your specific 15Five information.
Erin Holm | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cornerstone OnDemand

  • It's an off the shelf package, so while you can add in custom fields (a big plus), it's very rigid in terms of how it is designed to be used. Not every company works in the same way, and I've found that a lot of the recruitment functionality is more suited to high level or blue chip hires, rather than seasonal or bulk hires.
  • Specific issues we are having revolve around the references functionality. We ended up having to develop something in-house, as the system doesn't let you verify referee details o relationships prior to triggering the reference request. In addition, the form for capturing referee details only requests a name and email address. As a company working with children and young adults, we need to ensure the references we obtain are professional and tie in with a person's work history.
  • The self-scheduling of interviews is a great feature, but it could be so much better. It's impossible to see what slots you have offered to someone, and it's also impossible to see what slots each recruiter has free. As such, you end up inviting people to book in an interview...only for them to discover that all the slots are already filled.
  • Notifications. Generally, this is poor in Cornerstone. If, for example, a candidate requests alternative interview dates, there is no notification that goes to the recruiter or person who initially created the invite. Likewise, if you use the email functionality within Cornerstone (which we'd like to do, as this helps to maintain a full history) when a candidate replies to the email there is no easy way of knowing they have replied unless recruiters go into the user's profile. As a high volume recruiter, this just isn't workable.
  • There are a number of other areas in the system that are 'OK' but with some development could be great. They include: Offer Letters, Editing/Deleting Data (if you want to update a field on an application form or delete a document you've uploaded...you need to put in a service request with Cornerstone), Reporting, and the overall 'bigger picture/ view' of a candidate and their application/work history.

As long as pricing stays reasonable, we will likely stay with Cornerstone for at least one more contract renewal. It would be a large task to migrate all of our content to a new system. However, the LMS landscape is diversifying with new startups that are showing some real innovation.

It's very simple to use - not overly complicated. You wouldn't need training to use. There are some features I never use because I don't understand -- like one on ones. However we use without and still find a lot of value in it!

Cornerstone OnDemand in general has very good usability. It is easy for end users to start using it. We don`t need to provide any trainings for learners or line managers. At maximum we can create one pager with general information. It is easy to search trainings. You don’t need to know the ID or full name of training.

Pages do not load quickly. Often times any action or selection of a box, drop down, check, pretty much ANY Javascript interaction causes the whole entire page to load/reload/start doing something in the background. This makes a nightmare for having to mass edit courses or upload ILT sessions. It's the one of the archaic web designs they use that really bugs me as an admin and makes working in the portal at times intolerable and insufferable

The 15Five support team is amazing. They were always willing to speak with me when I did something wrong in the system and never had a harsh or placing judgment tone in their voices. They respond quickly and promptly and allowed me to learn something new each time I cross lines with them. I am thankful for their knowledge and customer service they shared with me when I needed it.

They are still working out issues with their support ticket system. I think we are now experienced enough that when we submit a ticket, there is not a quick easy answer and involves higher levels of support so it does tend to take a LONG time to get assistance. When there is a major issue, their communication is getting better but when you have a defect to report or a high level support it's going to be a while. They do have EXCELLENT online help, a very active online community where customers help customers and great user groups so there is other avenues of help

Alternatives Considered

15Five

I've used Asana and Jira. Jira has too much functionality for a team like ours and Asana didn't have enough gamification for our team. At the end we chose 15Five because it was simple to use and easy to follow, it also allowed the manager to review each individual on the team quickly and effectively.

Cornerstone is simply more flexible, powerful and easier to use and manage than previous Learning Management systems that we have managed. I would say this carry's over to the implementation process as well. Far easier with Cornerstone.

Return on Investment

15Five

  • For me, the ROI is immeasurable. I don't know how I could manage my team without it.
  • For the second year running, my team has been rated as "most engaged" by our annual HR survey. For a company with well over 1,000 people globally, I'm proud of this! Without 15Five, I dont know if it would be the same.
Shane Murphy | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cornerstone OnDemand

  • One of the main reasons we switched to Cornerstone OnDemand was to deliver video training seamlessly. Cornerstone OnDemand has been able to support most of the video training we do. This has allowed us a single source delivery point, lowering the costs of having multiple delivery providers for SCORM and non-SCORM compliant content.
  • Cornerstone OnDemand is far more difficult to administer for our trainers. This has taken up more time from training operations. Cornerstone OnDemand takes approximately 20% more effort to maintain, enroll, and communicate with our users and regional support staff across our nine offices.
  • Cornerstone OnDemand has a robust reporting system that is too difficult to use. We spend 65% more time getting reporting than we did with our previous LMS.
